Upcycled Paper Tube Holiday Christmas Wreath

3 Materials
4 Hours

I have seen a lot of these TP Christmas wreaths on Pintrest and I really wanted to make one of my own.

It was an easy project and only tools required are a ruler, scissors, wire cutters, pliers and a glue gun.

It is a pretty simple project. Just cut the tubes and glue five pieces together at the center.

I used a bowl to shape the wreath in a circle.

After gluing the wreath together it was a little limp and looked more like a tear drop than a circle.

I used the pliers to bend a wire hanger into a circle and glued it to the back of the wreath.

Then I used some more tube pieces to fill in the wreath.

Sprayed it with silver spray paint.

I made a few upcycled bobbles to decorate the wreath.

And now it is hanging on our door.

Suggested materials:

  • Hot Glue  (Hobby Lobby)
  • E6000 Glue  (Hobby Lobby)
  • Silver Spray Paint  (Hobby Lobby)

    Hi! Would you explain how to cut the rolls? And, it looks like it's been sprayed - did you spray it - if so, with what? Thanks!

      Make an individual Gift Holder for Jewelry by pressing ends down and then lift the ends up keeping them inside. Also easy for packing items for travels.

    I'm not a naturally crafty person, but I found this to be so simply elegant. Could you explain the "baubles" project a bit for me. Thanks!

    U can also use soda cans or plastic soda bottles...They are stiffer than the paper rolls........ Your wreath is beautiful though... Happy wreathing...
